Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Elite Console
Steps to take:
1. First make sure you can get an internet connection with a pc/laptop
- establishes online connectivity -
a. check your ip address (google on how to do that for your operating system)
- usually if you are behind a router you will get an ip address like 192.168.x.x or 10.x.x.x
- if you get an ip address that starts with 169.x.x.x then you do not have an internet connection
- if you don't get those then you probably have direct connection to the modem
2. how is your xbox connecting to the internet?
a. connected directly to a router with an ethernet cable which is connected to a modem
b. wirelessly connected using the wireless xbox adapter to a wireless router which is connected to a modem
c. connected to a pc/laptop thats connected the internet (hopefully you've checked that pc/laptop passes step 1)
d. connected with a wireless bridge to a switch/router
- there are other ways to connect it but those cover most of the setups
3. if its setup a then connect an ethernet cable directly to the xbox from the router should be the only physical setup needed. (just dont put the ethernet cable in the WAN port of the router, connect it to an empty slot). you might also need to open ports on the router, ports 80 tcp, 88 udp, 3074 tcp/udp, 53 tcp/udp. google how to open ports on your router if you do not know how.
If it's setup b then you will need the follow information from your wireless router
ssid, wep64/wep128/wep256/wpa/wpa2 password (if you secured the wireless)
these need to be input in the xbox setup.
if it's setup c you will need to setup internet connection sharing on the pc/laptop and also if you are using a router to connect to the pc/laptop forward the ports to that pc/laptop and then forward the ports on the pc/laptop to the xbox.
if it's setup d, make sure the wireless bridge is setup first using a pc/laptop not connected to the router and making sure it is able to get to the internet through the wireless bridge. after that connection is establish remove from the pc/laptop and connect the bridge to the xbox. settings on the xbox should still be automatic.
- check to see what ip address the xbox is getting - (should be similar to the 192.168.x.x but not the same)

Ok, firstly i hate these problems.
first things first, switch your hub off (leave for 2 mins) switch back on, this may refresh the ip address, also switch your xbox off.. then try agian.
Get back to me and let me know what happens from here.
oh also are you connecting your xbox to the pc? or directly to your broadband hub? if you can connect it directly to your hub, this should solve any problems

I can solve this problem but it will cost you about 120.00. As the XBox wireless router was not receiving a signal from our modem we bought what is called "Gamenet". It is so simple. You plug one unit into a wall outlet by your modem (do not plug into a surge protector) and then connect it to your modem with the ethernet cable provided. You take the other unit and plug it into a wall outlet in the room with your XBox and connect it to your XBox with the other ethernet cable provided. This allows the signal to travel through your wires in the walls of your home. We did this and the IP address popped right up and my son spent most of the weekend playing XBox Live!!! Well worth the money and you don't have to worry about lag time or dropping a signal with wireless because it is not wireless! It's Great!

(this is a solution that i gave someone who had a wireless router...
you will also need to forward the same ports even if you have a wired
Ok... I have the best solution to this problem... Obviously you have wireless internet... so that means you have a wireless router... you need to login to the wireless router settings... usually it is192.168.1.1 that you type into your browser by default... if it is not192.168.1.1 in order to find your router address you need to click on start.... run... type in cmd... then in the command prompt type in ipconfig/all... your router address will be the number next to default gateway... put that into your browser and login to the router... dont exit the command box just minimize it because you will need it later...if you have not changed the password its usually either password...admin.... or nothing at all.... once you are logged into your router you need to forward the open the ports for your xbox 360 for it to beable to connect to xbox live with an open NAT... (meaning you can connect to everyone without problems) once you get to port range forwarding you are going to have to put in 6 ports for best performance... name them all XBL or XboxLive... and forward these ports... 87-89 UDP.... 3073-3075 UDP..... 80-80 TCP... 88-88 UDP...3074-3074 BOTH... and 53-53 BOTH... make sure they are enabled... find out what your start ip address is... i changed mine to 192.168.1.200with a maximum number of users at 50... (this will come in handy and i will tell you why later...) turn on your xbox 360 and go to network settings and manually change your settings... so if you have your ip address range from 192.168.1.200 - 192.168.1.249 like me... change the ip address of your xbox 360 to 192.168.1.240 (the computers that connect to your wireless router always take the low ip addresses... so setting your xbox 360 ip address to 192.168.1.240 will make it so there arent any ip address conflicts...) remember the box i told you to minimize? you are going to have to input the numbers in the command box into the boxes in the xbox.... 255.255.255.0 for the subnet mask...default gateway for the gateway... enter in th e dns settings... first one is primary... second one is secondary... save and you are done with that... if you have your ethernet cord hooked up from your computer to your xbox 360 click on start... control panel... network connections...click and highlight the network bridge and your wireless connection...once you have them both highlighted... right click... and click on bridge connections... and everything should work fine...

I just moved into college and I brought my xbox. When I hooked everything up and turned it on, it tried to sign me into xbox live but wouldnt. It finally logged me in but i wasnt connected to live. So I tested my connection and it wouldnt connect to the network. I knew immediately it was my ip addres, since this had happened to me before. Unfortunately for me, I didn't know what the ip address was supposed to be and i tried looking online but couldnt find an answer. Finally I figured out how to fix it, and i will share with you how.
If you have never seen this error message before, you probably wouldn't know what was wrong let alone how to fix it. It's not your ethernet cord. If you plug your ethernet cord into your computer you would probably be able to get on the internet, so your cord is fine. The first thing you need to do is unplug your ethernet cord from the back of your xbox and plug it into your computer. Then, on your computer (if its off, turn it on) find network settings. Its sometimes under system preferences. (if you use a mac its the apple in the top left corner. PC is the "start" in the bottom left corner.
There (network settings), if your ethernet is properly connected to your computer, it shows you the ip address, subnet mask, router, and both dns servers.
From there you need to turn on your xbox and go to system settings. Then select network settings, select configure network and change your settings from automatic to manual. Then just type your ip address in and your dns servers and test connection. The first time I did this i didnt connect to xbox live right away, but i did connect to the network and the internet. I just turned my xbox off then back on and it connected me to xbox live right away. Hope this helps someone

How to download demos in xbox live
Posted on Jan 27, 2009
SOURCE: ip address failed
If you are behind a router.. try hooking it up directly to your cable modem or DSL modem. If that fixes the problem then you need to open ports on the router to allow the connect to get routed to your xbox.
